BERLIN – Following the rising tensions between Ukraine and Russia, airBaltic has scheduled two additional flights from Riga, Latvia to Kyiv.
Flights are available for purchase on airBaltic’s website.
The carrier offers daily flights from Kyiv to Riga this week, it also performs flights from Vilnius to Kyiv on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday as well as a direct flight from Odessa to Riga on Saturday.
airBaltic stated that “The safety of our passengers and employees is the main priority of airBaltic. airBaltic is continuously evaluating the current situation and following the recommendations issued by official authorities.”
“airBaltic is flexible and ready to adjust its flight schedule if necessary.”
Airlines ramping up additional flights to the region does not come as a surprise, especially with the national carriers in Ukraine having to scale down services.
Israeli carriers such as Arkia and El Al have also got involved and have offered to place additional flights to the destination if such tensions continue between the West and Russia.
